The Delcambre Seafood & Farmer’s Market is on the map! The Daily Meal recognized the very best farmer’s markets in America and Delcambre Seafood & Farmer’s Market was voted #59! Click here to read the article and view the list of other markets rated amongst the best. Considering our Market has only been on the scene for just over a year, we’re incredibly proud of its immediate success. Now the nation has one more reason to make their way to our little community.
One may ask themselves what qualities are valued in a good farmer’s market? According to The Daily Meal, the best farmers markets are based on three main factors: “What’s at the market”, “Street credibility”, and “When it’s open”. “What’s at the Market” takes into consideration the quality, amount, and variety of the products sold, as well as information about the product provided by the vendor. “Street Credibility” is based on what people are saying about the market, our friends and neighbors, and also includes social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as the popular business review site, Yelp. “When It’s Open,” considers how often the market is open weekly and year-round. Thanks to our wonderful farmers, vendors, attendees and marketing efforts, we’re on top!
With the September 6th Grand Opening of our new market pavilion at 605 South Railroad, the Market will no doubt be even bigger and better. So be sure to come out and join your friends and neighbors and contribute to the growing success of the Delcambre Seafood & Farmer’s Market by purchasing local, fresh and sustainable products from our vendors and join in the day’s festivities!
